BFI - Heavy Weight Shift Knobs & Boots | Manual, DSG & Automatic Specific Options!




Not only do our BFI Heavyweight Shift Knobs look great inside your car, but it also adds a bit of function and performance as well. With its solid construction and added heft, shifting becomes smoother and faster. Utilizing a modular threaded insert design this shift knob is compatible with nearly any VW or Audi application.

Our manual transmission BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs come in several different styles:
All GS1 and GS2 manual transmission BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs include:
  • One Heavy Weight Shift Knob
  • One BFI crest logo coin
  • One adapter for vehicles without threaded selector shaft
  • Three set screws
  • Allen key for set screws






















Just because your car doesn't have a third pedal, doesn't mean you should be stuck with some goofy shifter. Until now options were limited to OEM and other less than ideal choices for those with DSG / S-tronic / Automatic cars. Fortunately with our proprietary design you can ditch your stock shifter and switch to a more traditional style knob.

To disengage the lockout you simply lift up, rather than pressing the trigger (works with both side and front triggers!). It is that simple. Installation is straightforward and takes only a short while.

Our DSG / S-tronic / Automatic shift knobs are currently compatible will all DSG, S-tronic and Tiptronic models in MK4 through MK7 VW and B5 through B8 Audi models. However, early automatic models that do not use a shift boot (ex MK4 or B5) may not look aesthetically pleasing because the entire adapter is exposed. Later models with a shift boot will cover the lower part of the adapter that holds the set screws and trigger mechanism.

Our DSG / Automatic BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs come in several different styles:
All DSG / Automatic BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs include:
  • One Heavy Weight Shift Knob
  • One BFI crest logo coin
  • One adapter for DSG / Auto selector shafts
  • Four set screws
  • Allen key for set screws





*MORE DSG / AUTOMATIC IMAGES COMING SOON!*







After you upgrade your shift knob, the first thing you notice is just how much the factory shift boot is lacking. We now offer specific fitment shift boot options in various materials to compliment your new shift knob. Donít underestimate just how much such a simple piece can dramatically improve the feel of your interior. These boots are CNC cut for a precise and consistent fit. All boots are produced in the USA by JPM Coachworks using only the best materials available. Choose from the selected optional thread colors [black, red, blue or silver] to give your interior a unique, or OEM plus look.

Our BFI Shift Boots are currently offered for these applications:
All BFI Shift Boots include:
  • One Leather or Alcantara shift boot with your choice of thread color

Wondering why leather knob stitching is fancing toward car occupants instead of toward the dash ??

That's just how the owner decided to install it.
I like the seam facing the dash, but you could install it facing any direction you'd like.

So the top emblem/design/engraving can be rotated?

The emblem should face occupants, the stitching should face the dash. The Schwarz know is sick!

Here's a quick breakdown on the shift knob and how it's installed..

The shift knob is delivered to you in multiple pieces:
  • Shift Knob
  • Adapter w/ Set Screws
  • Crest Coin
  • Pinch Clamp
  • Allen Wrench

When you're installing the shift knob:
  1. Screw the Adapter into the shift knob.
  2. Attach the shift boot to the Shift Knob using the Pinch Clamp (some customers have used a zip-tie). You may orient the seam in whatever direction you'd like; preferably towards the dash.
  3. Install the Shift Knob onto the selector shaft and tighten the Set Screws with the provided Allen Wrench.
  4. Last step is to attach the Crest Coin by removing the paper backing from the adhesive and pressing it into place on top of the Shift Knob. You can orient the Crest Coin however you want, but I like it facing the occupants.

Cool tool!

Will you be offering a Mk7-specific shifter that not quite so sunken in?

TIA,
Ben

The MK7 GTI's selector shaft is shorter than the Golf's as well as previous generation vehicles.
Our shift knob will always sit a little lower on these cars, but that's like a double mod!
